I finally got a hold of someone at zigzag ranger station and he told me that trillium and most of the lakes on mt hood are now closed until further notice because of fires and trees down in many of the roads leading to the lakes/campgrounds . oh well next time .
Yeah, I drove up there hoping to jump on the top of the Oak Grove Fork, but you can't even get close to the trails and water. Seems to me like there are plenty of passionate (ok, more like zealous) fishers out here who'd be happy to apply some chainsaws to those dangerous (I almost air quoted that, but felt too obnoxious) trails and roads. Please for the love of god, let us fish.
